virginia. so i say to you, if we can't find the resolve to use 1/8 of 1% of the budget for additional transportation maintenance funding, then we are not serious about maintaining our transportation infrastructure in virginia. we will also propose some other reforms to virginia department of transportation and reduce timelines for construction and other things to make our road building projects go smoother. we will reform and promote new expansions in the port of virginia. a great asset for us that can be a global leader in international shipping, and the growing space port on the eastern shore. i think it is also time that we address head on, ladies and gentlemen, the hard realities of our woefully underfunded state retirement system. as of the june valuation, the funding status of the system was 70% for state employees and 66% for teachers. you read the j. lark report. they said the numbers will go to 63 and 61% respectively in 2013. that's unsustainable. i do not want to pass this problem on to another governor. you should not want to pass this on to another general assembly. i say

government should be, so it can more easily fit inside your pants. today, in virginia, a cascade of amazing things happened in republican politics. first, "the washington post" reported that republican governor bob mcdonnell's staff and handful of anti-abortion republican state legislators met last night to try to salvage the national disaster they had gone into to have you have to have an unnecessary vaginal probe against your wishes and even if your doctor objects, if you wanted to get an abortion in that state. now the legislation has already passed. it's passed both houses of the virginia legislature, thanks to republican majorities in both. the republican governor and vice presidential hopeful, bob mcdonnell had said he would sign this bill into law. it was all proceeding apays, this is all going according to plan, until the national media noticed what was going on and everybody freaked out and it made it in a joke on "saturday night live "a giant protest at the capitol, this whole thing had become all of a sudden a political emergency. so, back pedal, back pedal, according to

whole swearing thing. >>> if that is not big enough role for government, there is a man in virginia, bob marshall, also a republican. he once tried to outlaw swearing in e-mail. not just by teachers, not just by any one group of people, not a particular kind of email, he proposed virginia state government outlaw profanity by anyone in any e-mail sent from the commonwealth of virginia. it's one thing to think swearing is bad. it's another thing to say that swearing is bad or to ask other people not to do it. but to dislike swearing so much that you would expand the role of government, you would create a government so intrusive that the government would monitor your speech and read your e-mails in order to prosecute you for swearing, few people are that dedicated to stamping out curse words. but that is what arizona is considering today, for the teachers. on the state's 100th birthday. that is how seriously bob marshall took the problem of virginia's e-mail swearing epidemic back in the 1990's. >>> this year, virginia delegate watch your mouth bob marshall is championing a really big gover
